Kathakali, Ikkat, Aztec & More: 8 Mind Blowing Prints We Found At The Fabric Stores On MG Road

    Ikkat, nylon or cotton? We picked these impeccably beautiful printed fabrics from MG Road, starting at INR 150 per metre.

    Embroidered Fabric

    Home to over 100 embroidered prints, National at Clover Centre is one of the most sought-after fabric stores on MG Road. From handcrafted floral work on pastel tones to sophisticated silk brocade, delicate chikan and gorgeous Benarasi fabric, this place is a one-stop-store for all your wedding woes.

    We picked this beautiful nylon net fabric in blush pink with handwoven silver embroidery and pretty flowery patterns. Priced at INR 2,100 for a metre, this piece is perfect for those one-of-a-kind cocktail gown. If pink isn’t the colour for you, check out fabrics in brighter shades like mustard yellow, vermilion, turquoise, fushia and more.

    Another stunning piece that caught our attention was this ivory and purple silk fabric, priced at INR 770 per metre. The print is graceful and simple yet fashionable enough for a blouse or even a lehenga.

    Kathakali & Mudra Print

    If you love all things edgy then head to Ramgir, a 40-year-old fabric store at Wonderland on MG Road. They have a massive collection of silk and cotton fabrics in the quirkiest prints you could ever imagine – Buddha, elephant, temple leaves and peacock. The best part about these prints is that they can be used any way you’d like- for a crop top, a kurti, a cushion cover or a long jacket.

    Priced at INR 150 per metre {each}, we picked a black and red Kathakali print cotton fabric {for a flowy summer dress} and a royal blue Manipuri silk fabric with bold mudra prints {for a fun shift dress}.


    The best collection of cotton ikkats we found was at Nazakat Fabrics in Camp. They have some great stuff in colorful triangles, checks in pink, red and grey, hand-spun patterns and more. We picked this pretty neat sky and dark blue mix ikkat print for INR 250 per metre. You can also check out their phulkari and tie-dye cotton fabrics, ranging between INR 400 and INR 800 per metre.

    Abstract & Aztec

    Add some spunk to your wardrobe with abstract and Aztec print fabrics from New Matching Centre. We are in love with these geometric patterns in vibrant colours on cotton, priced at INR 150 per metre. If you’re a minimalist, go for similar designs in monochrome and turn it in to a fun sleeveless jacket or a mini skirt!

    #LBBTip: These prints will make for super cool cushion covers and lampshades too.

    Guitar Print

    Cushion cover or a tote bag? This super-cool guitar print cotton fabric for INR 150 per metre is just about perfect for anything! We got this from Kishore Fabrics, where you can also find bandhni and kalamkari prints starting at INR 420 per metre.
